Hadlow Rural Community School (HRCS) opened in September 2013 and offers a unique educational opportunity to students across the Weald of Kent; located within an idyllic 20-acre rural campus, situated in the historic village of Hadlow.
HRCS is a popular, oversubscribed School with a current roll of just under 400 students. The School relocated to a £7million new build in 2016 and has developed a strong reputation both locally and beyond for enabling its young people to excel and flourish; providing an exciting, vibrant and dynamic experience in academic and land based vocational studies. The school is heavily oversubscribed and has, for the last four years, achieved one of the highest percentages of preferences for Year 7 places, for non-selective schools, across Kent.
The success and popularity of the school has been based on our ethos of providing an educational experience suited to our students and the local community and, whilst academic progress is of the highest importance to us, this is equally matched by our promotion of vocational and enrichment opportunities, ensuring the development of every child as a whole.
Positive, productive, and supportive relationships with all stakeholders is a key element of the school and this is further underpinned by maintaining small class sizes of 25-26 students across the school, with many Key Stage 4 option subjects averaging class sizes of 15 students.
High expectations are promoted across every aspect of the school and all members of HRCS are expected to be kind, caring and considerate, showing honesty and integrity and applying 100% effort in all their endeavours, supporting our school motto of ‘Effort Achieves’.
